The 42-year-old Favre...
Former San Francisco 49ers coach Mike Singletary wants to put his tenure in California behind him and now, apparently. Singletary, who currently coaches the Minnesota Vikings linebackers, has reduced the asking price on his Saratoga, California home for the third time.

Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen may be suffering through a 2-10 season so far, but he's not letting it affect his dynamic play … or his sense of humor.
